jonsiii (165) - Fredericia, DENMARK - APR 19, 2008
Bottle 33 cl. Copper brown colour, nice long lasting head + lacings. Very malty and sugary flavour. A bit alcoholic finish. I wonder why. ;) Good one.

djd07 (14366) - Houston, Texas, USA - APR 17, 2008
Bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a medium frothy off white head taht lasts awhile. The aroma is very malty with lots of fruit and vanilla. Very good sticky lacing on the glass. The taste is a dark fruit and sugary finish. A good quad from Koning.

Wow! Im impressed. I was expecting it to be a wee bit darker. Its definitely lighter than other quads but who cares...it tastes great! I think it was a case of the right beer at the right moment.

Not too bad. Aroma is sweet, with fruit and floral notes. Flavor was nice with malt and dark fruits with spice and carbonation with slight alcohol in the finish. Quality beer but there are better quads out there.

FishManLA (337) - Abita Springs, Louisiana, USA - APR 13, 2008
Bottle. The color of an old copper penny with a relatively thick tan head that dissipates fairly quickly. Moderate lacing. Nose of prunes, caramel, and coffee. Flavor is of dark fruit with notes of caramel, coffee, pepper, and then... a finish of alcohol. Pure and simple. Like when you do a shot of liquor. The alcohol punch, not that noticeable until the finish, serves as the final kick to each sip. This one would be a good cold weather brew (It’s April, and not that cold outside, as I sampled it). The beer drinker’s answer to brandy!

Bottle. Bought under the Koening Hoven label. Smells like old bananas with a sweetness in the aroma. Average head. Pretty sweet in the taste with a touch of spice left on the palate afterwards. This ranks right up there with Chimay and Rochefort and perhaps even surpasses them in my book. Definitely look forward to drinking this one again.

Eructoblaster (4178) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 13, 2008
Bottle - 330ml. Superb hazy amber body with low carbonation and an average off0-white creamy head. Nice malty/hoppy aroma with brown sugar, caramel, and fruity hints. Alcohol is very well hidden. Well balanced and complex taste that carries fruity (plum, cherrues), spicy, and yeasty notes. Ends with a very enjoyable warming finish. Wonderful winter warmer!

RaphaelN (195) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - APR 12, 2008
Bottle at St.Veronus. This is one hell of a beer, and easily goes with my top favourites. The aroma was pleasing, and involving with honey, molasses and a blend of sweet spices. The flavour tasted like a blend between Rochefort 10 and Kasteel. The brew was sweet, but did not take away from its integrity. Absolutely fantastic! A must have.

3.1
Blom (837) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 12, 2008
Brown with a low head. Sweet aroma and flavour of peach, plume, kiwi and banana, but the alcohol is overwhelming and there is too much yeast to really cut it for me.

3.8
mjg74 (3093) - La Mesa, California, USA - APR 11, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2008 Bottle from Bev4Less. Super dark amber in color upon pouring. Aroma is slightly sweet with a big banana and spiced cloves. Rich malty dark fruits as well. Sweet dark fruit up front. Some yeast and spices. Some roasted maltiness. A hint of bitterness in the finish. Good sipper. Well hidden alcohol.
